✦ Kruger Nationalpark, South Africa
We did our first self guided gamedrive at South Africa´s famous Kruger Nationalpark. We couldn´t believe how successful we were and how many animals we managed to see – including this guy. Ostriches aren´t normally on top of any tourist´s bucketlist, but if you take your time to watch them closely, they can be really fascinating. Although not the most beautiful creatures on this planet, the long flexible neck and huge three toed feet make them look a bit like dinosaurs. By the way, how can ostrich eggs survive under the enormous heat of the African sun without getting boiled?

✦ Robberg Nature Reserve, South Africa
South Africa is one of the very few countries we visited twice during the last couple of years and that´s for a good reason. At Robberg Nature Reserve we spent an awesome afternoon hiking the 9 km long and quite adventurous „Point Circuit Trail“, where we spotted hundreds of seals and even some Southern Right Whales. In the end we got a little bit stressed when the sun started to set while we were still climbing over some pretty big rocks at the shore and ended the day trying to get rid of a scratch in our rental car with some toothpaste and a brush, but that´s another story …

✦ Kruger Nationalpark, South Africa
We´re not really sure if we actually like baboons. They can be super cute when you watch them playing, cuddling and caring for each other, but are really scary when they stare right into your eyes or show their huge fangs – which can be the same size as those of lions by the way. Maybe it´s also because Irene got almost bitten by one at Victoria Falls once, so leaning out of the car to get a picture of this male crossing the road was more thrilling than you might think.

✦ Kruger Nationalpark, South Africa
Watching wildlife munching on branches for about 20 minutes should be an official form of meditation, cause there’s honestly nothing more calming. We met this huge elephant during one of our breathtaking days in Kruger NP – he didn’t seem to be bothered by us at all, first started sniffing gently towards our direction and ended up chilling only 5 meters next to our car. Thinking about for how long this guy is wandering around on his own made us feel very thankful to share such an intimate moment with him.
